About Me

Life is a journey and not a destination. I look forward to getting to know each individual that I work with and finding ways to make their journey more successful and happy. I am person centered and trauma focused. With over 20 years of work in the mental health field I have experience working with many areas of concern such as anxiety, depression, transitions, family of orgin issues, relationships and self esteem. I like to start with building rapport while gaining an understanding of your world view. I treat all people with respect and dignity. A big part of showing respect is to engage you in the process of developing the goals that you want to work toward. The first step of reaching out for help may not have been an easy one and I honor your bravery in doing so. I look forward to seeing how we might best work together to help make the next steps of life easier and more enjoyable. My approach in counseling is to individualize treatment to meet your needs and to empower you to find the answers within.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Barbara has been great! I feel completely comfortable sharing how I’m feeling and what I’m going through. She’s really good at helping me look at things from a different perspective and focusing on the positive. It’s hard for me to ask for help or accept it. Barbara has helped me and is still helping me with this is a constant battle for me. Grateful to have her support and highly recommend her! Thanks Barbara!

Barbara has already helped me so much in just a few sessions. She has a kind calming non-judgemental demeanor. She offers multiple suggestions for changing your thought processes and habits for the better. I am grateful to have been paired with her.

Amazing counselor who makes you feel welcome and heard from early on. Sometimes a lending ear is just what you may need.
